Perhaps the resolution is not the best of its features, but except on rare occasions where we will have to strain our eyes, easily meets the screen. An average user will find comfortable in his day to day. Maybe we are talking about the perfect screen size. Enough for most average users, ensuring maximum usability and not sacrificing portability. We can say that not being particularly fine, it is not perceived as a fat phone. Surely with a millimeter less we would be talking about an improvement in its exceptional design. We can not say that the materials used are a strong point of this phone. But we will have to sacrifice this aspect if we chose it. Nor does this mean that the mobile is perceived bad once we have it in hand, but certainly not up to the terminals high-end. A terminal something poor about processing power is concerned, but you can surely satisfy the vast majority of smartphone users today.

    What is a Ki score?
    Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
    How do we calculate the Ki?

    In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

    • Design and screen
    • Hardware and performance
    • Camera
    • Connectivity
    • Battery

    Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

    Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

    Does the Ki score change?

    The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
